One of My favorite Magnemo Figures from the Micronaut toyline was the RED FALCON.
However that would be the Western Mego/GIG name.





The Takara version of the figure went by another name entirely.

The Original name of this figure was the far more imposing DEATHCROSS




Red falcon was released through the Converters toyline as the SILORG Warrior.

Red falcon’s Nemesis was Machine Saurer, a Green Magnetic lizard creature




Later to be reissued in Blue As Machine Dragon




With the rise in popularity of the POWER RANGERS tv show,
Many clones of Red falcon would hit the dollar stores:


At the Height of Micronaut fandom, a toy made directly or
Micronaut fans was proposed by Dennis Barger of MEN IN BLACK toys.

This figure was highly anticipated.

Sadly, this was never to be produced.


In 2003, Pallisades reissued the Red Falcon:

Thanks for the info.

I recently picked up what I now know is the SILORG Warrior, good to put a name to it.

Missing the fists, sword and one of the falcon legs but hey, it was cheap.

I belive the converters toyline was a European thing, sort of like the KRONOFORMS issud here.

If you have close up pix I'm sure everyone would love to see!

Kind of makes sense now it was from the convertors line, I think they were a UK company that released a bunch of licensed Takara stuff, possibly some Tomy stuff as well. I had a Multiforce 14 by them as a kid, re-named Alphatron.

Anyhow, my Silgord Warrior isn't mint by any stretch of the imagination, missing a few parts and a sticker or two but here's a coulpe of pics

Guy-

Yes there are three different color variations of the Death Cross figure. I don't know that any color is rarer than the other but who knows.

Grandstand Toys of the UK did Convertors back in the 1980s. I sold my 3 Pallisades reissue Red Falcons along with all my other Palisades Micronauts a while back on ebay. Got a great price for the lot. However, I kept the 3 Membri Brothers as they really liked my house and all the other toy friends they'd made so I didn't sell them...they are very happy. Laughing

Btw GuyX? Whats with the bad photoshopping on the last pic of the 3 Palisades Falcons??? Shocked
